Arm Yourself for Adventure

“When you try to talk about Dungeons & Dragons, how do you begin? Where do you begin? This is a game that you can call an institution, a grandfather to the gaming industry as a whole.” —Wyatt Krause, Sprites and Dice

Welcome to the World of Dungeons & Dragons

In the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, you and your friends coauthor your own legend.

One player, the Dungeon Master, serves as narrator—describing a world full of wondrous places to explore and challenges to overcome. The other players create characters and immerse themselves in that world, making choices and rolling dice to see what happens.

Silly moments spawn inside jokes; epic battles leave treasured memories; and where you go next is entirely up to you.

PHB

Learn How to Play

"A fun, fast-paced game that’s approachable for new players and has hidden depths for old veterans." —Jonathan Bolding, Escapist Magazine

For Adventurers—The Essential Rulebook

For those playing a character in a D&D adventure, the Player’s Handbook is essential for learning how to play and will serve as a lifelong companion for leveling up, equipment, and more.

For Dungeon Masters—1 of 3 Core Rulebooks

For dungeon masters (DMs), this book is the first of three core D&D rulebooks:

Player’s Handbook—contains all the rules needed to play the game.

Dungeon Master’s Guide—teaches DMs how to run the game—full of tools, tips, and magic items.

Monster Manual—contains creatures for DMs to populate their D&D world and all the information they need for thrilling monster encounters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great game, horrible printing
Reviewed in the United States on March 12, 2018
While D&D 5e is a very good game, there are some serious issues with the printing/storage/construction of the books. Two friends and I all got this book, and all three of us had pages that were warped. It almost looked water damaged, but I don’t think that is the case.

Looking through other reviews of not just the Player’s Handbook, but also the Dungeon Master’s Guide, and the Monster Manual, apparently this is a common issue with 5e books. Pages are warped, binding is off center, and in the case of the DM guide, a lot of people are getting copies that have the cover attached upside down.

I’d love to give this a higher rating, because I love 5e, but until they can fix whatever is causing all of these books to be garbage quality, I just can’t.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful game, awful book quality. **UPDATE: Replacement product received from Wizards of the Coast!**
Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2015
I bought this book last September 2014. A bunch of the pages have come free from the binding. I have 2nd edition D&D books that I bought new in the 1990s that have held up to the test of time. I take care of my books so this is frankly unacceptable. Will be contacting Wizards of the Coast to express my extreme displeasure with the quality of this product. It is a real shame since the book has 5 star content, but is made at 1 star quality.

UPDATE 9/30/15:
I thought that I would share my experience with obtaining a replacement book from the manufacturer after my initial review. I contacted Wizards via phone and email to report a defective product. The info to do so may be found here: [...]
After explaining my situation to the customer service rep, they promptly scheduled a pick up via FedEx of my defective book and when it was received, I was sent email notification that a replacement was in route. Fast forward to today, 9/30 and my replacement book has arrived and is in perfect condition. Time will only tell if this one holds up, but for now, I am optimistic. So for those out there that have had issues with the pages coming free of the binding, there is hope! Contact Wizards and explain the situation to them, they have been more than fair in my case. Just a word of advice, be persistent and patient and your replacement book will come.

2.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book let down by cheap printing.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 13, 2022
The text print shows slippage and registration errors on some of the pages. It matters when you’re using the book for extended periods as it causes eye fatigue and strain, but it’s just generally messy for a £30 book (£40 rrp) which should be flawless for the profit margin they’re getting.

Also, the pages have not been allowed to dry properly before being cut, stacked and bound. I worked in print for years and when you look down a book’s page edges and they’re all super-wavy, it’s because the printer has a lot of work on and pushes the book through too quickly without letting the ink dry fully and without controlling the temperature or the environment. As you can see from the edge shot, it looks like the pages have had a perm.

This would also explain why some of the other reviewers are reporting pages stuck together.

I had some more of these dnd books on order because they’re well priced here, but I think I’d rather see the thing before I buy it tbh so am cancelling those orders too.

From a book and publisher this expensive, it really should be a lot better quality than this.
